Michael Fierman
Managing Partner
Co-CEO

Mr. Fierman has over 22 years of experience in non-agency mortgages, including 15 years in operations and credit risk. In May 1998, he co-founded SouthStar Funding, a national wholesale mortgage lender specializing in non-agency mortgage products. His core responsibilities included credit risk management, product development, and operations. SouthStar was a nationally recognized industry leader in customer service and product innovation and employed over 800 people. The firm funded as much as $6.5 billion annually in non-agency mortgages.

Mr. Fierman and partners established Angel Oak Capital in 2008 as a vehicle to capitalize on the dislocations within the financial markets, specifically in the residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) market.  Since that time, Angel Oak Capital has continued to create long-term value for investors through both its public and private fund strategies.

Mr. Fierman holds a B.A. degree in Political Science from the University of Georgia.
